Windows 7: Custom Icons

16 Jul 2009   #1

Custom Icons

I am working on an icon package that is going to have a lot of common and uncommon hardware and software icons in it.

I was inspired by the lack of icons for things I need icons for.

What I would like to know is are there any hardware/software icons anyone needs? Be specific if you can.

I will include any and all icons I can in a package and get it uploaded with a link once it's finished.

Here is an example of a volume icon I made for my SoundBlaster X-Fi Fatal1ty audio card:

These are the types of things I want to include in the package. I know there are quite a few other people out there running the same audio card that I am and with win7 displaying an icon for audio hardware in the volume slider I figured this could be a nice addition.

Anyhow let me know what you think and give me some suggestions for other possible icons I should include in this pack.

I need this one. I am working on an application that will "shoot down" problems. Or 12 point fatties.
